Harvard Chan Grant/Scholarship Application Process

Deadline for Grant/Scholarships:

The Harvard Chan Grant/Scholarship Application will be made available for 2023-2024 academic year applicants early December. The deadline for grant/scholarship aid is January 8th, which is BEFORE you will learn of your admissions decision. Applying for grant/scholarship aid has no impact on your admissions decision.

Please be aware, this will be your only opportunity to apply for grant/scholarship aid, even if you are applying to a multi-year program. There is no option to apply or reapply for grant/scholarship aid in future years.

Grant/Scholarship Eligibility

We encourage all applicants (domestic, international, and undocumented) in eligible degree programs to complete our grant/scholarship application regardless of their level of financial need. Harvard employees eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) are ineligible for additional grant/scholarship.

Application Process: Deadline January 8th

    • Complete the Harvard Chan Grant/Scholarship Application when you receive email communication with the subject line Harvard Chan – OFA – MyFinaid Access.
        • Please contact our office if you have not received this email by December 15, 2022.
        • The Harvard Chan Grant/Scholarship Application is a short application and no documentation needs to be submitted with it. It will ask some general questions and then specific financial questions about your current financial situation (2022 earnings, etc.).
    • Domestic students (defined as: U.S. Citizens, U.S. Permanent Residents, Citizens of Freely Associated States, Refugees, and Persons Granted Asylum) are strongly encouraged to also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the January 8th deadline.
        • Students in programs ineligible for Federal Aid should not complete the FAFSA.
        • The FAFSA is available starting October 1st for the 2023-2024 academic year. It uses prior year tax data, so can be completed as soon as your 2021 taxes are done.
        • Although the FAFSA will not impact your grant/scholarship application, it will help us to provide a complete financial aid package at the time of admission.
        • Our Federal School Code is E00214 (select Harvard University School of Public Health).
